Smart home technology makes vacant units appear to be inhabited
It's nice to think that your Evanston rental property will have guests, but that isn’t likely to always be true. However, you always want to make it appear that people are present so your rental isn’t targeted by burglars. Incorporating a security system with home automation allows you to use smart lighting, motion sensors, and security cameras that make your home appear inhabited.
Begin by programming your smart lights to come on at specific hours of the night. Then, use your security app to alert you if your exterior cameras notice an intruder lurking around your perimeter or walking toward your primary entry. You then are able to employ the 2-way talk functionality so they know they’re being watched or set your lights to automatically illuminate when a surveillance device or motion sensor discerns questionable movement.
Protect your Evanston Airbnb with 24/7 monitoring
Your occupants can sleep easy if they have protection against criminals, specifically when Evanston is not familiar to them. In the event a prowler attempts to invade your property, your home security system will not only initiate the alarm siren but will also notify your 24-hour monitoring agents. Regardless of your location, emergency services will be forthcoming. Your monitoring agents are capable of acting as your primary contact and patch you in when you're free.
Besides break-ins, your monitoring hub can link to fire alarms, flood sensors, and carbon monoxide sensors. It would be understandably harrowing for your visitor if flooding occurs or a fire breaks out. You not only will get a cell phone notification that an emergency has taken place, but the monitoring agent is also able to arrange for emergency services while you're in transit.
